Nossyg belongs to
The original design is here-- myrmoorzai.deviantart.com/art/…
Nossyg is the art trade I'm doing for Myrmoorzai. I decided not to add much of a background since I wanted to concentrate entirely on the dragon and have no other distractions for it. This was a very fun character to work on, and it's a very interesting breed of dragon, too. To understand it better, you should check out the original concept sketch (linked just above this paragraph.)
So yeah, it has all the elements of its kind, such as the thick gold and copper hide of the young (which I've based a little on crocodile armour,) the faded blue eyes, the sand gills, the quartz on its belly and as its teeth (I decided to use more natural looking quartz rather than cut shapes) and the five-fingered paws. Though it wasn't specified on the design, there are tiny quartz crystals on the paws, too. Its wings are also not webbed and actually look more like hand, since they're used for grabbing onto rocks above it (they dwell in mines.) OH, and the claws and nose are glowing faintly since these can become super-heated.
Done in my usual pencil crayon style and again digitally destroyed in GIMP (thankyou, lousy scanner.) Hope you like it, Myrmoorzai!
